Welcome to episode 10 of the Technology Shopping Cart Podcast, recorded as a live webcast on September 26, 2008. This episode features a conversation with Bob Martin and Brad Meyerhoff,  educational technology trainers for MOREnet in Missouri. Karen Montgomery and Wesley Fryer visited with Bob and Brad about the challenges which sometimes arise when teachers begin using read/write web tools to facilitate collaboration, communication, and content creation in classrooms. Bob and Brad work with a wide variety of teachers in diverse Missouri school districts, and have facilitated a number of conversations at educational conferences in the past year which focus on overcoming the obstacles to effective web 2.0 integration in schools. In addition to discussing strategies which are working to open the door to web 2.0 tool use, webcast participants also discussed a few educational technology news items and shared several new “geek of the week” websites. This was our first live webcast in which we used free CamTwist software, which permits (among other things) a slideshow of static images to be shared in the Ustream video window instead of just a live video feed. This audio podcast version is longer than the Ustream archive for this episode because it includes the first fourteen minutes in which we had some audio technical problems with Ustream. Those problems were entirely user-generated! We are continuing to learn more each week about podcasting as well as webcasting. As always we welcome your feedback and comments.
